Hey what's with the girls with the stars in their eyes?
Screaming blame, love kisses tears and lies
From your lipsticked lips will they ever learn?
I'll take it in for a second before we crash and burn

And we are alright now, but we're feeling tremors

It's like a landslide from the top of the world get up,
get up and turn it around
And baby we can get on with it.
It's like a landslide from the top of the world tonight,
but hey I'm up for the fight
and lately I'm not sleeping.

And what's with the fact that I can't relate
To this broke down town through a melody
There are streets in this town I don't dare drive down
I chalk it up to a lesson from adolescence

And we are alright now, but we're feeling tremors

It's like a landslide from the top of the world get up,
get up and turn it around
And baby we can get on with it.
It's like a landslide from the top of the world tonight,
but hey I'm up for the fight
and lately I'm not sleeping.

Don't let this break you, don't let this break you down

It's like a landslide from the top of the world get up,
get up and turn it around
And baby we can get on with it.
It's like a landslide from the top of the world tonight,
but hey I'm up for the fight
and lately I'm not sleeping.

So let's raise our glasses up tonight, no longer skeptical now...

    General Commenti can't understand if it's talking about easy girls or harlequin girls.

    "from your lipsticked lips, will they ever learn?"
    kinda sounds like they're talking about an easy, slutty girl

    but then "hey what's with the girls with the stars in their eyes?"
    to me, kinda reminds me of the girls just wanting romance. the naive type, i suppose.

    well catchy song nonetheless. current myspace song =]

    General CommentI am not sure what it means, but I don't know if it's about easy girls.

    They had two close friends of theirs as the girls in the video. I don't know if they'd do that if it was about slutty girls.

    Then again, the video didn't follow any sort of story line, so maybe. I'd go with naive though.

    General Commenti think its about girls who are too afraid to date again after being hurt so bad

    General CommentActually in an interview Dan said it was about the time when his mom was sick from cancer but he was on tour so its basically his feelings of how strange it is to be performing to people when he felt so down.

    I think the
    "Hey what's with the girls with the stars in their eyes?"
    is literally the fans come to watch them play

    and

    "And we are alright now, but we're feeling tremors"
    is kind of like he is doing fine on stage but he feels like he is about to cry

    anyway, the song is open to interpretation, you can add your own personal meaning to it... its still a great song =D

    General CommentWow. I never really thought about it like that. Thanks Jesus freak. I was kinda thinking it was random, because most of the other songs on SKYS has something to do with Dan's mom, or his cousin, or for his sister...

    SKYS was a pretty family oriented cd, wasn't it?
